I would suggest stripping the bottom end then you can change the primary chains, tensioner etc etc and giving it a good assessment overall. Would be a shame to get it all back together and in the frame and then have to remove it all again if there is a problem you weren't aware of.
Im a Nurse, trust me, this won't hurt.....much !!!

I agree with Julie, tensioner rubber parts will deteriate even if low mileage so while out of frame, I'd strip bottom end

May be worth you starting a new thread in the 750 section Brett as many people will look in there for references to  engine rebuilds.
